Editor's Notes: Cactus Plant Flea Market is stepping back into the world of Nike; and once again, has proven that no one matches its statement-making abilities where sneaker design is concerned. A bold statement, sure, but on review of its last couple of Swoosh-backed drops, it's one I'm willing to stand by.

Armed with a DIY, unconventional, and totally batshit crazy approach to sneaker design, Cactus Plant Flea Market has delivered a selection of Nike's wildest styles of all time.

First in line was the VaporMax 2019, which turned the silhouette on its head with rope lacing, stitched-on details, a neon sign-like 3D Swoosh, and a bold smiley face graphic at the heel. Its two-piece Dunk Low selection was, in the grand scheme of things, pretty tame, clearing the road ahead for the head-spinning Flea 1.

The mud-encased, grass-like CPFM Flea 1 was a precursor of things to come with the "Overgrown" or "Grinch" Dunk Low.

While there is some confusion regarding which monicker will be the official name come release day, this might just be the most insane sneaker ever put to market.

Once again, a mud-encased sole has been chosen but is mostly hidden thanks to the overgrown shaggy piles of green faux fur that cover the sneaker's upper. Amongst the thick hair, you'll find a hidden yin-yan logo and green lining – I'm sure there are laces in there somewhere, too.

Clearly, CPFM is allowed to do whatever it wants when a Nike silhouette is placed in front of it, leaving us wondering what could possibly come next.
